    This may be the wrong place....BUT

    Advertisements
    I am in search of new dishes. Plates and bowls most specifically. I can not find anything I like that my dh likes. SO FRIGGING annoying. Anyone have a place they love to shop at for dinnerware?? It needs to be affordable. And there lies the problem...

    Correlle all the way. Isn't all that expensive if you get one of the less popular styles, or find it on sale. You can order them online from either their website, or a lot of other stores have them. Also, the grocery store here has them in their kitchen ware department (not all grocery stores have this though), they are usually on sale there. Another good place to look is Marshalls/TJMaxx and Tuesday Morning.

    They last forever. Also they are pretty much unbreakable unless you have stone floor and drop them.

    I got my dishes at Big Lots a few years back. And they're all still in great shape. Sturdy, neutral colors, and they dishes were rather large in size. (my DB always teases me when I eat ice cream saying I put half the tub into one bowl. )

    DB: "Hey woman, listen up. I love you. Now shut up and kiss me."
    Me: "What sparked that sudden outburst?!"
    DB: "I just love you. You are beautiful. You are sweet. And you are MY baby. And I miss you."

    Oh my Mom has square ones in a different design. I love the square shape! Also the bowls are surprisingly big.

    I have some cheap round Correlle with just a red stripe. I don't particularly like the style, but they were on sale for like $25 for a set.

    They really do last forever. My mom has some from like 20-30 years ago that still look brand new.

    Those are the same ones my mom has! They're kind of off white, but I'm pretty sure they came that way. I think my Mom has broken maybe one dish ever, because it happened to hit the floor at just the right angle, which is very hard to do.
